Air Canada is so excited by the promise that I have received the email announcing this twice .“If, within 24 hours after completing a purchase on aircanada.com or aircanada.com/agent, you find a price for the exact same Air Canada flight that’s at least $5 less with another Canadian online travel retailer, Air Canada will offer you a credit of $50 plus the price difference, per passenger.”
As usual lots of exclusions:
- Must be available through a Canadian third-party online travel retailer* within 24 hours after completing your purchase;
- Must be displayed and sold in Canadian Dollars (CAD);
- Must be at least $5 less than your original price;
- Must be for the exact same Air Canada flight number, for travel marketed and operated by Air Canada, Air Canada rouge or by Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz, Aviation LP or Sky Regional. – codeshare flights marketed or operated by another carrier are not eligible;
- etc. - full list here
What in fact I would like to see is insurance. I buy the ticket now, I purchase insurance $7 for 1 week, $20 – 2 weeks, $50 – 3 months (made up numbers) and if the price goes down I get the difference. This would offer me peace of mind. I think there was a site/airline that offered this for 7 days only, if I recall properly, can’t remember which.
